"A Small Family is a Happy Family"

Playing with stamps, old letters and embroidery today to create this intricate little samples. Thoroughly enjoyed it and I like the way you can draw with the stitches.

The title comes from the tiny print on one of the stamps from India. I agree with its sentiment entirely :-)

New Work by Anita Klein

I adore these new hand coloured drypoints by Anita Klein ~
the composition, the strong line and the rich use of colour all appeal to me very much. She is able to use a simple theme many times without losing any of the appeal or freshness of image. Strong, direct yet highly personal. Hope you enjoy them, too.
